Models pose with medals celebrating the 2018 FIFA World Cup at the Russian Embassy in central Seoul on Friday. The Korea Minting and Security Printing Corporation presented commemorative coins and medals that celebrate the Korean national football team reaching the World Cup finals for the ninth consecutive time. The 31.1-gram medals, which come in either gold or silver, were made in the form of a dome, which requires advanced pressing technology. The 2018 FIFA World Cup starts on June 14 in Russia. [YONHAP]
